The Port News Commemorates Over 100 Years Of News Coverage!
Over 100 years has passed since the first issue of the Port News was released. William M. Hyde had many great visions for the community when he first founded the paper in 1903. How did his visions help Port Washington to become the community it is today?
Orchard Beach Boulevard Business Burglarized
Local restaurateur Israel Guzmán reported that Señor Coco, the snack bar that he owns and operates near the Capri Marina on Orchard Beach Boulevard, was burglarized in the early hours of a recent Monday morning. The perpetrators broke a window and took the cash register. Somehow, they ran with the locked cash register from the end of Orchard Beach Boulevard to Kirkwood Road at Cambridge, a distance of more than half a mile. They dropped the register, unopened, into the backyard of a home at that site. Guzmán was amazed that they could carry the register that distance. "It weighs about 50 to 75 pounds," he said. "It looks as if they were intending to take it into a house. Maybe they fell." He added that there was blood on the register, presumably from someone cutting himself, as well as fingerprints. He said the police are investigating.

On The Bay
There's a lot going on to report this week, as our sailors have been quite active. It's as if they are trying to sail as much as possible before the summer is over. For our junior sailors, the summer is almost over, as they are going on the Dorade Race and the Beach Point Overnight, two races that signal the end of the season. While it seems like these young people just got out on the water, all the programs on the bay are planning their award dinner, their last event of the season.
